Walls‘ are getting a bad rap. The real meaning of ‘walls’ has been politically skewed as a thing of evil. Nothing is further from the truth.  A wall is a structure that defines an area, carries a load, or provides shelter or security.

To wall something in means to protect it, to save it from harm, as your own arms around your children protect them.  We build walls with sand bags to protect property from a storm surge. We build retaining walls to keep earth from washing away. The walls of a building are its structure, built on its foundation. Without them, there could be no towns, no cities, no homes.

Violence will not be heard again in your land, Nor devastation or destruction within your borders; But you will call your walls salvation, and your gates praise.– Isaiah 60:18

Today we are bombarded with the secondary meaning of the word, Wall. And that is to wall something out.

Any action taken or performed has a motive. The motive for building a wall on our border is being misconstrued by some who have other agendas than protecting our homeland of America. Because of the lack of leadership and foresight in the last administration, America has been seriously compromised.

We must look at the two motives for building a wall. To keep out people who are not legally American, or to protect the Americans within our borders.  Which is primary??

The facts are that the United States has always had a legal process to become an American citizen and there should be no shortcuts. To allow a lawless entry into America is trouble with a capital T–and that is obvious today.

For that reason, it is simple common sense to build a wall. To do otherwise is to see America and her people put at risk. Immigration to America should be undertaken legally, or not at all. After all, those who want to come here should shoulder a mature responsibility–to follow the rules and enter our country legally.  Sound reason says: This is our country, and those we let into it will make us, or break us.

Then I said to them, “You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace.” I also told them about the gracious hand of my God upon me and what the king had said to me. They replied, “Let us start rebuilding.” So they began this good work. (Nehemiah 2:17-18)

Americans ought to feel safe in our own country. It may sound harsh when we are talking about sheltering ourselves from other human beings created by God, but because they ARE human beings like us, they  must be held to the same accountability of obeying our laws.

We must take care of America first–our country, fought for many times at such high cost.

America is our security. Our shelter. A wall just makes sense.

Very, very interesting video showing only a fraction of the price paid for America.

    If only “real history’ was taught in today’s schools. We must take care of America first–our country, fought for many times at such high cost.
